The Devil you know returns, with more iconic style than ever before!

In Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition, blistering speed meets impeccable control for an incredibly tight gameplay experience as you work your way through the thrilling story. This optimized version of the original release represents the pinnacle of stylish action and was recognized with numerous game awards!


Several years after the Order of the Sword incident, a new demonic threat has invaded our world. It's up to the legendary devil hunters Dante and Nero to stop it, with the newcomer V joining forces with them. These three men's fates are tied together in mysterious and surprising ways.


The game introduces next-gen features such as ray tracing technology and enhanced 3D audio, fan-favorite modes including Turbo Mode and Legendary Dark Knight Mode, and the inclusion of Deluxe Edition.

  • Adaptive triggers: Press L2 to rev up Exceed on Nero's sword, the "Red Queen", and feel the pull of the throttle - it's a brand new tactile experience that immerses you in the action of DMC5SE.
  • Haptic feedback: In DMC5SE you'll feel space bend when you perform Vergil's Judgment Cut and the rattle of DMC's trademark arsenal of weapons as they lay into the oncoming demons - all thanks to the DualSense™ wireless controller upgraded haptic feedback.
  • Tempest 3D AudioTech on compatible headphones: With compatible headphones, the PS5 console's Tempest 3D AudioTech allows DMC5SE players to close their eyes and transport themselves to Red Grave City. Hear screeching demons clearly on your left and right, while feeling the swoosh of your sword right in front of you.
